With the holidays here, one excellent way to share your support is by giving “Wyoming Secrets” or “30,000 Secrets” to a survivor. “Wyoming Secrets”, “30,000 Secrets” and “Santa Barbara Secrets” due in late 2018, are inspirational novels which focus on women who feel overwhelmed by the threat of violence in their lives.
